Derulo tweeted: "2night the #VMA’s... who can tell me what's dropping Oct 1? Hint: go 2"

Obama retweeted Derulo, with a caveat: "Tattoos not included."

Derulo recently attended a White House meeting with entertainment industry people to discuss ways to get involved in the rollout of Obamacare in October. Perry was one of Obama's strongest celebrity supporters on the campaign trail in 2012.
